In the morning we got our usual Pday tasks completed. At Pday activity Elder Pruitt made the zone crepes. We were able to get a floor hockey set from Garden Grove. We played a couple rounds. Our dinner was with the Haddocks. He showed us some more of the relics he has. This time he showed us some Russian coats that are hard to get outside of Russia. We ended our night finishing up our planning for the week.
In the morning after studying we tried to do a little finding. We were able to have lunch with Rosa she made us German Lentil soup. We were able to catch Angelica home and we taught about the Book of Mormon and praying to know if it is true. We also invited her to church on Sunday. We saw Daniel outside his apartment and setup a time to meet this week. We tried a less active Brother Diez and met Art in his garage he was a little intoxicated, maybe we will catch him another time, the finding continued till dinner with the Dean's. We saw Sal and Victor briefly before the end of the night. We exchanged at the end of the night Elder Westover came to the area with me.
In the morning after studies we went and met the A6 Elders at Nehras. She wasn't home. We did some walking around we were able to catch Brother Esela we talked with him for a while and setup an appointment. After lunch we had service at the Dean's we helped him finish fixing one pipe to discover that we needed to fix another. We had dinner at the Kneubuhls home which was fun. We finished up and saw the Kiakamonu family and taught them some of the commandments. We talked about obedience, scripture study and following the prophet. We finished up and our last lesson fell through so we did finding till we exchanged back at the end of the night.
In the morning we had district meeting we were able to discuss Repentance and helping the people we teach understand and how to repent. After Elder Pruitt made the zone lunch and we did the usual end of transfer pictures. We went out and went to go to our lessons we had setup but they weren't home which is always upsetting. We did finding till dinner which we picked up from the Larsons. We were able to end our night at Pedro and Linda's teaching them about prayer. We caught Victor too and talked with him before turning in for the night.
In the morning we got asked to fill in for someone at Rise Against Hunger. So we picked up the Red Hill Elders Lindsey/Pehrson. We helped repack bags the while time. They did a big event in Las Vegas and ran out of bags. So we poured the meals out of the plastic bags into the real bags then sealed them. After we dropped them off, we stopped by the repair shop to get an estimate on the repair they need to make on the car. We went back and had dinner with the Perkins. After dinner we finished the night doing a missionary meeting at Ruby's.
We were able to see Angelica we talked with her about church attendance and how it would help her receive the answer if it is true she agreed that she wants to come to church. We met up with Jason and setup another appointment he got hit with another project. We saw brother Diez and met his wife they fed us these Italian breaded steaks they were good. We had dinner with Brother Zelodon. He made us Filet mignon. After dinner we did some finding we met a guy named Wade he was surprisingly nice and walked up and asked for our number. Turns out he likes the church and lives some where in another ward but told us he hasn't joined yet. We finished the night with transfer calls. They are dissolving our side of the ward and I'm going to the Anaheim zone with Elder Hugie in the Anaheim 5th ward. Elder Wright is going to the Anaheim 1st ward.
We started the day setting up chairs in the gym. We let the ward know of our departure there were many upset. We got to say our many goodbyes during church. We had a good lesson on the Holy Ghost in gospel principles. After church we took some pictures with the Walkers. I was able to finish my packing and dropped off most of my stuff at my next apartment. We came back and had choir practice. We headed out and went to dinner with the Mooreonis. After dinner we were left with nothing to do so we stopped by to see Linda and Pedro. Linda wasn't happy to see us leave. We prayed with them and talked with them for a while. We finished the night getting Brother Walker and the Sisters up to date on the appointments also the people of the coming weeks.
As the Apostle Paul prophesied, the last days are “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1). The influence of the adversary is widespread and seductive. But you can defeat Satan and overcome his temptations. Heavenly Father has given you the gift of agency—the power to choose good over evil. You can “humble [yourself] before the Lord, and call on his holy name, and watch and pray continually, that [you] may not be tempted above that which [you] can bear” (Alma 13:28). As you willingly obey the commandments, your Heavenly Father will strengthen you to withstand temptation. - True to the faith
